"The Boy Is Mine (with Brandy)" as written by Lashawn Ameen Daniels, Rodney Roy Jerkins, Japhe Tejeda, Brandy Norwood, Fred,iii Jerkins and Shaunta Montgomery....
The boy is mine, the boy is mine
The boy is mine, the boy is mine
The boy is mine

Excuse me can I please talk to you for a minute?
Uh huh sure you know you look kinda familiar.
Yeah you do to, but I just wanted to know do you know somebody named?
Oh you know his name.
Oh yeah definitely I know his name.
Well I just want to let you that he's mine.
Huh no no he's mine!

You need to give it up
Had about enough
It's not hard to see
The boy is mine
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The boy is mine

Think its time we got this straight
Sit and talk face to face
There is no way you could mistake
Him for your man are you insane

But see I know that you may be
Just a bit jealous of me
But your blind if you can't see
That his love is holding me

See I tried to hesitate
I didn't want to say what he told me
He said without me he couldn't make it
Through the day, ain't that a shame

But maybe you misunderstood
'cause I can't see how he could
Wanna change something that's so good
All my love was all it took (the boy is mine)

You need to give it up
Had about enough
It's not hard to see
The boy is mine
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The boy is mine

Must you do the things you do
You keep on acting like a fool
You need to know its me not you
And if you didn't know it's cause it's true

I think that you should realize
And try to understand why
He is apart of my life
I know its killing you inside

You can say what you wanna say
What we have you can't take
From the truth you can't escape
I can tell the real from the fake

When will you get the picture
Your the past I'm the future
Get away it's my time to shine
If you didn't know the boy is mine

You need to give it up
Had about enough
It's not hard to see
The boy is mine
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The boy is mine

You need to give it up (oh oh oh oh oh oh oh)
Had about enough (had about enough)
It's not hard to see (he's mine! he's mine! he's mine! he's mine!)
The boy is mine
I'm sorry that you (i'm so sorry you seem to be confused)
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me (he belongs to me)
The boy is mine

You can't destroy this love I've found
Your silly games I won't allow
The boy is mine without a doubt
You might as well throw in the towel

What makes you think that he wants you
When I'm the one that brought him to
The special place that's in my heart
He was my love right from the start

You need to give it up
Had about enough
It's not hard to see
The boy is mine
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The boy is mine

You need to give it up
Had about enough
It's not hard to see
The boy is mine
I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The boy is mine

The boy is mine, not yours
But mine
Not yours
But mine
Not yours
But mine

I'm sorry that you
Seem to be confused
He belongs to me
The boy is mine!

    General CommentI always loved this song! These two go good together. Oh, and I have a correction to announce. "Plus I can't see how he could, wanna take his time and that's all good" should be "Plus I can't see how he could, wanna change something that's so good".

    General CommentThis song is about two girls fighting over one guy. It's a hot song, too. I think both Monica and brandy are such talented female artists.
    411-They actually did get in to a fight over a guy in real life. Brandy had a blacked eye and Monica had a busted lip. So sad...

    General CommentI really like this song and when it comes on the radio, i stop doing whatever I am doing to listen to it. I think it was dump of them though to fight over a man when there are alot more out there in the world waiting for someone to ask them out.

    General CommentI love how they seem to be trying to restrain themselves (see I tried to hesitate) while maintaining infuriating confidence, displaying understandable irritation, and mocking one another.
    On the other hand, these lyrics--clever as they may be--are as unoriginal as it gets. Ever heard 'The Girl Is Mine'? Granted, I prefer this song, but that one has far better vocals.
    Not that Brandy and Monica are untalented.
